    Didn’t know Hubbard was a student of Leo Strauss. Or maybe authoritarianism has certain common denominators?

    Actually, one can control people by telling the truth. But people who tell the truth sometimes don’t really want to be in control…it just happens!

    Wow. That really made a lot of sense, troll.
    Care to elaborate, or are you just here to quip nonsense and hope it demoralizes a truth-teller?
